Merry Christmas to All

From Jere Gettle and the Gettle Family



Season's Greetings to our friends and customers, both near and far, however you choose to celebrate the holidays. As we are at the height of the Christmas season, we want to take this opportunity to thank you for your business that has brought us many blessings throughout the year. We approach Christmas Day with our hearts full of thankfulness and gratitude for the freedoms that we enjoy to do business with you, to spread the word about pure food, and to provide you with some of the rarest of seeds from around the world.

As the year draws to a close, we are thankful for our many gardens that produced lavishly throughout the year, for our loyal customers who sent us photos of your own gardens, and for all of the helpful comments and suggestions about how we can improve our service to you. We appreciate all of your visits to our farm, retail locations, and our many festivals throughout the year.




All the Baker Creek gardens are prepped for the Winter and ready for Spring!


We look forward to next year, eager to continue the many new projects and programs that we began this year. We are excited about our new ideas for the coming year as Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company continues to grow and expand our seed offerings and gardening opportunities for you. This is possible only because of our loyal supporters who order seeds from us, participate in our festivals, and share your Baker Creek seed catalogs with friends and family.

We wish each and every one of you a blessed Christmas, not just for one day but for an entire season. We further wish you a healthy and prosperous new year filled with success and happiness.
